Literacy in Years 3 and 4 – Writing Through Art

Years 3 and 4 have almost come to the end of their Writing Through Art project, which based on paintings on display in Kenwood House. Each week they have studied a painting by a different artist and created a piece of writing and an artwork based on the painting of the week.

One of the most recent paintings they studied was a self-portrait by the artist Rembrandt. He painted it near the end of his life and it reflects how he felt at that stage of his life. They imagined how he felt and wrote diary entries based on this. They also created their own self-portraits.
